Xie Limo waved his hand at Xie Shiyi, ordering her to not say a word for the time being. He looked at Yun Bixue’s battered body, and his heart began to throb painfully. It was as though a knife was thrashing around in his heart. He had never felt this way before, and today, the pain in his heart was real.
He wiped the dirt off Yun Bixue’s lips with a touch that was so gentle, as though he was touching a very precious and valuable gem. With her in his arms, he bent down and used his sleeves to wipe her bruised leg. He then removed his shoes and put them on Yun Bixue’s feet gently.
All of his actions were very soft and tender. Without a doubt, she was the most precious and important person in his heart.
Xie Shiyi was utterly confused at this unexpected turn of events, but seeing how loving Young Master Xie was to Young Madam, she didn’t dare to say a word.
At this moment, Xie Liu walked out from a dark spot and stopped beside Xie Shiyi. Knocking on her head, he said in a scolding tone, “What happened to your judgment? You clearly knew that it would be dangerous, but you still allowed Young Madam to come.”
Xie Shiyi lowered her head, blaming herself. “It was my fault.”
“Although you have failed to do your job well, there’s something that’s still considered satisfactory. You listened to Young Madam’s orders and followed her.”
“I should have killed Young Master Wang. Young Madam wouldn’t—”
“No, you did the right thing. If you attacked, it would only infuriate Young Master Wang. It’s still not time for the Xie and Wang families to break their peace. It’s best for Young Madam to settle the score this time around.”
Xie Shiyi understood some of it, but she still had some doubts. “Xie Liu, what’s going on? Is Young Master Xie alright?”
“Young Master Xie has experienced this kind of situation countless times since he was a child. Have you ever seen Young Master Xie injured before? We were just trying to lure out the mastermind, but then…” Xie Liu didn’t continue, but everyone knew what he was getting at.
The men of sacrifice who came with them had never expected to see such an astonishing scene. Young Madam was too powerful and dominating. After hearing those words, even the emotionless men of sacrifice felt like crying.
From that moment on, the members of the Xie family who had witnessed that scene began to acknowledge Yun Bixue’s status sincerely. Their respect towards her started to grow deep within them.
On the way back, Xie Limo wrapped Yun Bixue in his arms, shielding her from the wind and rain. Finally, they got in the car.
Yun Bixue remained unconscious, but she was murmuring some words from time to time. Xie Limo lowered his head and tried to make out what she was saying, only to discover that Yun Bixue was consistently calling out his name.
At that moment, Xie Limo had the urge to cry. For more than twenty years, he had yet to shed a single tear. Now, he felt a stinging sensation in his eyes as they reddened, and his grip on Yun Bixue’s arm tightened. Lowering his head, he whispered softly and warmly into her ear, “My dear, I’m here. I’ve always been here. We’re safe. Don’t be afraid, just sleep. Rest well. It was all a dream…”
With Xie Limo’s soothing words, Yun Bixue finally fell into a deep slumber. His head remained lowered as he watched her, as though he couldn’t get enough of her.
It was as though today’s mission had never existed, and he didn’t care that his plans had been interrupted. He only looked at her. Nothing was more important to him now than Yun Bixue.
Xie Liu drove throughout the night. Xie Limo brought Yun Bixue back to their home in Ning An City and hurriedly called Ling Nanchen to check her injuries.
When Ling Nanchen arrived and saw Yun Bixue, he had a lot to say to Xie Limo, but when he opened his mouth to say something, the latter shot an icy glare at him. Because of this, he could only shut his mouth and examine her. In fact, he had never seen Xie Limo look so worried. He would like to steal a few glances at him, but he couldn’t.
“How is she?”
“How dare you still ask me about her condition? Who treats their wife like that? Don’t you even know how serious her injuries are?”
